I agree with Jeff's basic point here, and this is what
makes my project idea both a very important
opportunity and a serious challenge. As one of the
possibilities, I'm thinking of doing a series of
workshops with elementary school teachers--especially
art teachers--in which I would demonstrate Python
tools like Tk Turtle and Vpython. (I'm open to
suggestions about other modules that may be useful.)
The participant feedback from such get-togethers could
become a valuable resource for further work.
